Pay Up Or Get Out

Written by

(AP) Minnesota's debt-plagued Republican Party has been served with an eviction notice for its party headquarters after failing to pay its rent payments since August. The party's landlord filed the notice last week in Ramsey County court and it is scheduled to be heard next Tuesday. Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Pat Shortridge told party members in a memo Thursday that officials are trying to renegotiate the lease to get one that better fits space and cost needs. The GOP has 21 months remaining on a lease with Hub Properties Trust for space a block from the state Capitol. Shortridge revealed that the rent hadn't been paid in eight months. The Minnesota GOP owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to various vendors. The eviction notice was first reported by Politics in Minnesota.

It's Not Really A Website Fail......Yet

Written by

It was supposed to help people out during storms and bad weather events. But La Crosse County Emergency Management Director, Keith Butler, says a storm and information website they created...well....it's just not working.

He says the Alert Lacrosse dot org website needs to be manned every day and right now they just don't have the resources to do that. They will, in the meantime, provide educational information and emergency related links for their web viewers.

Is State Safer With Concealed Carry

Written by
(AP) Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he doesn't know whether Wisconsin is any more or less safe now that 100,000 permits have been issued allowing people to carry concealed weapons. But Van Hollen said Friday that no problems have been reported since the law went into effect six months ago and if it deters crime, that's an added benefit. Van Hollen spoke inside the Department of Justice room where the permits are printed. Van Hollen holds the first permit issued by the state, but he says it's not known yet who will be issued the 100,000th on Friday. Van Hollen says the demand for permits has been strong. The agency anticipated 125,000 would be issued in the first year but it's nearly reached that after just six months.

Van Hollen Worried About Voter ID

Written by
(AP) Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he is very concerned about voter fraud as six recall elections near, including one targeting fellow Republican, Gov. Scott Walker. Van Hollen was asked about fraud concerns Friday given that the state's law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls has been blocked by two Dane County judges. The state Supreme Court on Monday refused to take up the case, making it unlikely that the law will be reinstated before the May 8 primary or June 5 general election. Van Hollen says voter fraud is always a risk and he has no reason to believe it's any less of a concern in the recalls. He says his office is moving forward with appeals of the lawsuits as quickly as possible.

(AP) Planned Parenthood plans to end nonsurgical abortions at its Wisconsin clinics. The organization's leaders say Planned Parenthood will continue to provide surgical abortions at its clinics in Madison, Milwaukee and the Appleton area. Planned Parenthood CEO Teri Huyck says the agency is suspending medication-induced abortions beginning Friday because of a new state law that subjects doctors who perform abortions to criminal penalties. The new law mandates that women having nonsurgical abortions visit the same doctor three times and that doctors ensure the woman is having the procedure voluntarily and without coercion. Huyck says the law sets unprecedented barriers for women seeking medication abortions. Planned Parenthood says about 25 percent of women who terminated pregnancies use the pill-induced abortion which requires a woman to take two drugs within the first nine weeks of pregnancy.
